Police revise number of weapons found at Waco shootout
WACO, TX - Police have again revised the number of weapons recovered from the scene of a Texas shootout last weekend where nine people were killed.
Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said Wednesday the estimate now stands at about 500. Earlier Wednesday he had said 1,000 weapons were found. On Tuesday, he said the expectation was that about 100 weapons would be found following Sunday's violence.
The numbers are all estimates because police haven't finished collecting evidence. He says information is being relayed to him by on-scene investigators.
Swanton says investigators have found an AK-47 assault rifle taken from a vehicle, handguns, knives, brass knuckles, clubs and chains.
He acknowledged the items included pocket knives and Swiss army knives.
Swanton says weapons were found in toilets, bags of chips and elsewhere at a Twin Peaks restaurant.
